Assessment

Mission Statement

The Jackson State Community College Academic Assistance Center provides a convenient testing environment for students, staff and faculty. The staff administers and proctors assessments conducive to individuals' overall academic success. Assessments include Jackson State online course and Regents Online Degree Program (RODP) exams, COMPASS placement and Confirmation tests, ACT Residual tests (for both admission to JSCC and the Nursing Program), alternative testing accommodations for students with disabilities, CBase exit exams, and courtesy exams from non-TBR colleges.

The Academic Assistance Center is located on the second floor of the Library. 

Note: All exams require an unexpired photo I.D.

Alternate Test Accommodations are available for JSCC students with disabilities who have registered with our Disability Resource Center and provided documentation of a diagnosed disability. The Disability Resource Center is located in the Student Union, room 133. The student or instructor must contact the Academic Assistance Center at 731-425-2614 to schedule an appointment with at least one week’s notice in case special preparations need to be made.   

Faculty set the exam dates for their Jackson State online classes.  No appointment is needed to test.  To see the requirements for testing, please click this link:  Web Testing Requirements .

RODP is available through TBR colleges, universities, and technology centers that joined to offer courses completed entirely online and transferable among all the participating institutions. Students are able to choose the college or university (home school) for their admission, registration, and the award of their degree. As part of this program, the TBR RODP institutions have agreed to proctor the students' exams free of charge. Students must follow the proctor guidelines listed on the RODP website. Exams must be scheduled at RODP Proctor Scheduling.

Courtesy exams require an appointment to be made by contacting the AAC at 731-425-2614 or bstone1@jscc.edu and a $20 fee to be paid in the Jackson State Business Office.
